Build a Bouquet die and stamp set from issue 162 of Simply Cards & Papercraft

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope your weekend has been good. We did manage to buy a fridge and matching freezer from a local shop some friends told us about recently and the price was good too. My husband has been working on his speech for the wedding and that is nearly finished. I just have the table plan  that will be displayed to finish this will be done next weekend. I had to make another for the caters so they know where everyone will be sitting.

When I got issue 162 of Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine I just had to use the Build a Bouquet stamp and die set that came with the magazine. I made a card and sent it into the magazine. Well I have had issue 164 at home for a while (I have a subscription) and when I couldn't sleep last night I was looking through it and on page 98 I spotted my card.

All the papers I used were in my stash. The jam jar had its own die. 

The sentiment came with the set and was stamped with Watering Can Archival ink. I matted it with the same card as the main mats for the card. 

The single flower stamp had its own die so it was easy to cut out. I stamped with Watering Can Archival and I coloured with my Stampin Up water colour pencils. 

I stamped the main bouquet three times once coloured I cut them out by hand. 

Here is my card printed in issue 164 of Simply Cards & Papercraft.  They wrote a lovely message about the card. 

Have a great week.

I would like to join the challenge at the Seize the Birthday Challenge blog. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
